Ringing in the New Year on Long Beach Island, NJ

Long Beach Island locals know that New Years Eve and New Year’s day on LBI is special. If you love LBI in the summer but have never experienced it in the winter or for ringing in the new year, you are in for a treat!

Special Memories in LBI

As I have gotten older, I have really become aware of how important new and special memories can be with my friends and loved ones.  If you are already a fan of LBI, then you know our island is a special place in the summer.  Millions of people flock to our beaches, hotels, and restaurants to enjoy our unique lifestyle.

… but have you ever rung in the New Year in LBI?

In recent years, New Years Eve and New Years Day have become much more popular in LBI as more and more people have discovered the peace and serenity of spending this special holiday in our peaceful NJ shore town.

The roar of the ocean carries louder and farther in the cold winter air.  There is something almost religious about it.  Taking time away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, to slow down and to be fully present with the special people in your life – enjoying the best that Long Beach Island has to offer, away from the summer crowds … it’s a one-of-a-kind experience and a memory you will treasure forever.

New Years in LBI – An Annual Tradition

I’ve met several people who have been coming to LBI for New Years – for years now.  They swear by it.  In some cases, friends and family members from other parts of the country join them in LBI.  

What do you and your family do every year for New Years?  Maybe it’s time to create some special memories of your own?

Where to Stay In LBI for New Years

If you are a frequent reader of our blog, you know that we cover hotels in LBI extensively.  This is because if you don’t find a nice place to stay at a reasonable rate, we know you won’t be coming to LBI for New Years or for any other reason.

It was difficult to get information about rates this year for LBI hotels for the New Years holiday.  However, one of our annual top picks in town Spray Beach Hotel gave us great information.  They are open, their rates are really reasonable (under $180, even for the holiday!).  Because they are located right on the beach we decided to look no further.  They even have a special opportunity for Jan 1, 2021. You can receive a 6:00 pm checkout for New Year’s Day at 50% off! This is a great opportunity to experience the full LBI New Years experience without breaking the bank.
